One for the Road

One for the Road

The 10-11 school year starts today, y'all. I'd like to say I'm ready, but I was having way too much fun, right up until the last minutes of Labor Day, to even really think about it. My newly minted cherubs will stream through the door of Room 215, whether I will them too or not, correctamundo?

I do have to say, though, that I did get a new pedicure, just for the occasion. That's what I call a lesson plan!

We spent the long weekend up in the Western Maryland mountains with friends at their place on Deep Creek Lake. It was so chilly that we slept between flannel sheets and wore our sweats, even in the middle of the day.

So, my educational philosophy for this year, which I worked out in the hot tub with my friend Carmen, goes a little like this: Just sit back, chica, and enjoy the ride.

Deep Creek is pretty, but now that I think of it, every time I've been there, it's been a chill in the air. Not so good for swimming, but great for campfires and s'mores.

Funny -- your weather looks grand, but you were cold. Our weather wasn't cold but it poured rain. I ended summer by slipping and falling in the mud with my camera. Your way looks much nicer (and cleaner).

I guess I can say: happy autumn! It sounds a bit weird because here in Casa it's still summer. Hot and sunny.
All the best for a new school year!

Happy first day of school!! (well it is for me... hence my wordless blog post today)

Pretty toes! That sounds marvelous, I might get a pedicure this week too, just because I can get up and go and not have any tag-a-longs... *sigh* :D

It's good to start the new year with you toes in shape. I hope it all goes well.

Have a grand first day back at school. Sounds like you're well prepared. (I love flannel sheets and sweats but I'm just not quite ready for them yet.)

Cool weather sounds heavenly! It's supposed to be back up in the 90's this week in Charlotte and I am so done with it. Your toes look perty! You're putting me in the mood for a little pedi on myself.

I hope you weren't driving when taking that picture. Lovely feet though.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oooh I could totally go for a pedi right about now!

Krystal said...

Jenny the Pirate said...

That's what I plan to do ... come what may. Nice toesies, Liss!

Andrea said...

Glad you enjoyed summer to the very last minute! Your toes look great. I am sad summer is over! Can't wait for Thanksgiving, we are going to Disneyworld!

Have a great first week of school!

Nice blog! I really enjoy it!
Going back to school always leaves me with mixed feelings, too. There is the excitement of starting a new year, meeting new children, and watching them learn and grow. Then there is that bit of sadness in saying goodbye to Summer. Enjoy the school year!
Kind regards.
